Crespin and Traherne bribe the butler to send an appeal for help over the wireless, but he betrays them and loses his life. Crespin gets the message through before the rajah shoots him.

Ghosts; An enemy of the people; The wild duck by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

35 editions published between 1881 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ghosts (original Norwegian title: Gengangere) is a play by the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. It was written in 1881 and first staged in 1882. Like many of Ibsen's better-known plays, Ghosts is a scathing commentary on 19th century morality. Ibsen disliked the translator William Archer's use of the word 'Ghosts' as the play's title, whereas the Norwegian "Gengangere" would be more accurately translated as "The Revenants"
